OpeitcU TeUgran to l^c Remitter.
Washisotojï, February 10.—A reporter
of tbe Reoistek v mi ted Congressman
Wilson at hb room this evening, and
found him jast preparing to go to tbe work
of bin committee«. He, however, sub
muted to a few questions, and I herewith
give hia answers :
"The Register would like to know
wbat progress the Committee on Ways and
Means is making with its Tariff bill. "
"I should be glad to give tbe Kkuistkr
any thin* that 1 properly conld disclose,
but jou will understand that I cannot
make public tbe action or the probable ac
tion of our committee. I may, however,
»ay that the fall Committee of Ways and
Means has not yet taken up the tariff
question, and no public bearing» bave !**n
bad betöre it, but the eight Democratic
members have been constantly at work for
more than a month, gather Jg material
from every source and working tentatively
on tbe schedules.
THE COMMITTEE WORK.
This work has been severe and
exhausting, and has as a rule extended«
each dav from ten in the morning to mid
night. In the torenooD and while Con
grew is in session, we are generally in com
mittee room, sometimes all, sometime« in
suli-committees, beariug all parties, em
ployers who wish to submit information,
argument or advice as to the details of the
tariff
"In thn way, by personal and familiar
iuterviews, we extract more information
and greatly more reliable than conld be
gotten from formal hearings before tbe full
committee. We have notonly encouraged
and welcomed such persons, but we have
sought trustworthy information by exten
sive correspondence over the whole coun
try. At night we meet tor conference and
work."
' Can you tell me what progress you
have made on tbe bill?"
"Only in a general way. Of course we
have gone over the schedules as a whole,
and some of them iu their details."
HI 1.1. READY BY MARt H.
"Wbeu do expect to report the bill?"
"Tbat 1 cannot forecast. Hay about
March 1, which sorely is as early as a well
considered bill should be expected."
' And now c.in you give any informa
tion as to wbat the nature of the bill will
h*>"
"Abeolntelv none as yet, without be
trayal of contideace. This much you may
tell your readers. That a caret'nl study of
the tariff justifies all that we have ever
chared as to its injustice and inequalities.
It lins truly crushed many industries
while «eekiug to loHter others Its protec
tion h as a rule inverted, being higher ou
the n»w material or partly manufactured
product than on the finished one, and it is
fall of jobs where strong individual, cor
poration or favored locality, has secretly
obtained a lodgment to crush out rivals,
or prey on other industries.
'"These wrongs we shall try 1o correct
and give life to some pursuits in onr
country that to-day are crippled and
dying. Put we recognize fully the fact
that we deal with an existing and some
what iuveterate system to which the busi
ne-i ot the country has adopted itself, and
that we mast aim to reform and improve
the system as we find it, rather than to
bui!d anew on different and better founda
tions. "
THK WOOL DITTY.
"What can I say for the farmers is your
proposed action as to wool0"
*'OnIy this, at present: That if wool i"
put on the tree list, it will l»e because we
shall have satisfied ourselves that it is to
their interests as farmers and as wool grow
ers that it should be. There are two great
das»-* in this country whose interests have
been entirely forgotten in the tariff we have
had since the farmer and the labor
ing nuu. We shall honestly try to consult
and advance the interests both in one sys
tem of taxation. But now I must go."
"I will see you later."

TRADE REVIEW.

Wi-fk'« BumIu«*».
Nkm York, February 10.—K. 0. Dun
& Co., in their weekly review of trade,
say: •
la the general coarse of business there
bas been uo peiceptible change. The vol •
nme of payments including paper matur
ing February 1st, was over 13 per cent,
larger than last year outside of New York;
evidently the gain in volnme of new trans
actions is much smaller. Railroad ton
nage is enlarged by wars of rate*, and the
rates of expense»« to earnings grows less
satisfactory.
The capacity of the iiou turnaces in
blast February lit, was 16,406 tons weekly
lees than January 1st, and contrary toex
pectation, much more than half the de
crease was in other than anthracite fur
nacts. The effects of the strike in the
coal regions increase from day to day, but
are not as great «s th* depression due to
shrinkage in demand.
Pig iron is weaker at Pittsburg, but
stiff at the east for the better grades on ac
count of their scarcity. In manufactured
iron a slackened demand still causes weak
ness.
The business failures daring the last
seven days number for the United .States
237, and for Canada 52; total 259, com
pared with 279 last week and 267 for the
corresponding week last year. The feature

NO NEED OF QUARANTINE
In Illinois A^ninat rieuro-Fueuiuonla — Mr.

SpRiN'UKIKI.r», Im.., February 10.—
Chairmau Pearson, of the Live Stock
Board, in spe.iking of the report of Com
missioner Coluiau ia regard to pleuro
pneumonia in Chicago, said the Commis
sioner is misrepresenting the facts or is
himself misrepresented by the public
prints.
The particular part ot the report which
he says is untrue is the statement that a
bird of 3UU cattle was exposed to the
chronic occurring December 29 last The
case spoken of was in a quarantine stable,
and the cow wa* one of five confined there
in, and ail five were -slaughtered soon
thereafter.
The report tkat there is a herd of 200
cattle in Chicago exposed to the disease is
erroneous and calculated to do injury to
the cattle interest, and the case cited is no
good reason for maiutaihing quarantine
until April 1.

WEST VIRGINIA WINS.1
THE W KIT OF HABEAS OORPl'S UHANTED IN
THE HATFIELD CASE.
I
Oar Own Gibson Lays the Blue Grass Attorneys Oat
Culd—Proceeding* in the Ctse Before Judge
Barr — The Hattelds Unlaw
ful; Confined.
Louisville, Ky., February 10—Argu
ment was heard to-day in the United State*
District Court, on the motion l'or a writ of
habeas corpus in the ease of Valentine
Hatfield and eight others, citizens
of West Virginia, now confined in the jail
of Pike county.
Hon. Eustace Gibson appeared for West
Virginia. He said that he believed that
the commonwealth ofKentncky had been
the first in the history of this country to
seize and enjoy an opportunity for the
iuvasion of a sister State and
the seizure of her citizens by
a baud of outlaws. The petition sets
forth that this State of affairs had been
brought to the notice of the Governor of
Keutucky, who, while uduittiug that tht
citizens of West Virginia had been vio
lently and wroDgfuliy captured, yet re
fused to light the wronir.
The right to settle the Iuter-State ques
tions was distinctly conferred upon the
Federal Government.
Gov. Knott paid: "If this was a contro
versy between States, as the argument of
bis learned brother bad indicated then
this proceeding should be before
the Supreme Court of the United States
which alone had jurisdiction iu controver
sies betweeu States. From the fact that
the attorney for West Virginia had seen
fit to connect the chief magistrate of Ken
tucky with this ridiculous proceeding and
to assail his character in connection with
it, he would read a little from Gov. Ruck
ner, defending himseK
Mr. Knott then read the letter, which
refutes the position taken by the Governor
of West Virginia. He said he had com
plied with every condition which Governor
Wilson thought necessary and therefore
supposed that steps had been taken to
give np the fugitives from justice. He
knew nothing to the contrary until early
in January.
After fx-Üov. Kuott, Attorney Gen
eral Hardin addressed the court, among
other things he stated that the United
States statute on the issuing of a writ of
hjt>eascorpus explicitly requires that the
person confined must make aud sign
the petition for bis own release. In
this case the petition was not so
made and .signed. Further, the petitions
aro net good because the conditions and
facts of the confinement ate not set forth as
the law requires.
Judge Barr, in rendering his decision,
stated that he felt great hesitancy in
the matter. The case was without
precedent and he was doubtful, the pe
titions being obscure. Such being the
case, however, and the attorneys for the
State of Kentucky having failed to show
that the prisoners confined in the Pike
connty jail bad been placed there through
dne process ot law, he inclined to the side
claiming relief tor the persons unjustly
confined and would grant the writ of habeas
corpus, returnable next Monday a week.

OHIO PUISONS.
Mr. LiixUey't mil Proposing a Board of

Coi.i'MBi a, Ohio, February 9.—
The Ohio Penitentiary, like the canals
of the State, baa been a knotty question
with which to deal. The Legislature lia»
not reached a solution of the problem.
The law-makers are bound to view th»
management of convict« only ou a cash
basis. The qu«*«iion of the humidities
does not figure as a factor. On the qnas
tion of prisou reform the Ohio anions ob
serve a profound silence. Eich of the
parties when in control grind dowu the
convict for the purpose of making a good
financial showing. The contractor of
prison labor mikes money and the convict
sutlers iu proportion to the tormer's ratio
of profite. Toe section relating to the
imprisonment of convicts was amended in
the House to-day by the passage of Mr.
Claike's bill, which allows life convicts
the sura of five cents per day.
Mr. Lindsey'e bill prescribing the mode
ofapplying for pardous,commutationofsec
tence aud reprieves was parsed yesterday.
This bill provides that the Governor shall
appoint, trom different parts of the .State,
fonr persons, two from each of the leadiug
parties, which shall be known as the Ohio
State Board of Pardons. The Governor
shall fill all vacancies The right is re
served to the Governor to grant or reject
any application, commutation or reprieve.
Application for such pardon or comma
tation shall be given on behalf of the ap
plicant to the prosecuting attorney of the
county in which the applicant was indicted
and convicted three weeks prier to present
ation to the Board. The prosecutor must
acknowledge the service of noticeand pub
lication must be made of said notice The
Governor may grant a reprieve to any per
son under Fcntence of death without ap
plication. The Board, however, may con
sidf r snch reprieve and may reccommend
that the same be granted or rejected.
The House Temperance Committee
recommended the passage of a bill which
pass«-.] the House. It provides that the
G. A. R. Union Veterans' Union and Sons
of Veterans shall be incinded among the
organizations already named by statute
providing that no malt or intoxicating
liquor is to be sold within two miles of
their several encampments.

tbe person of Moses S trass, of tbe firm of
M. Strauss & Son, wholesale dealer in tail
ors' trimmings at 508 Broadway.
Strauss was accused by Jacob Samuels,
of Samuels Bros., merchant tailors at 246
Bowery, of inciting Samuels to burn his
Bowry stores to get the insurance and pay
his debt to Strauss. Samuels made affi
davit that he owed Strauss $1,900; that
Strauss had said be would never be able to
pay it unless he burned his stock and
house to net the insurance He bad told
Strauss that he had only $3,100 insurance
on bis stock, and Stiau.*s said that this
was not enough, he would send an insni
ance broker to him to take more insur
ance on the building. The broker came
and Samuels secured six thousand dollars
more insurance, and the building was to
be burned, when certain suspicion« actions
attracted Inspector Byrne's attention, and
'bv succeeded i i persuading Samuels to
eonfefs tbe whole plot
Mr. Strauss said to-day that be was tbe
victim of a conspiracy. Samuels was in
bis debt and bad devised the story to in
jure him.

he believed the prisoners were trying to
get ont ot jail.
A couple of others then proceeded to the
alley and listened for further sounds, bat
none were heard. A match was then

BRUMM S ARGUMENT.
THE CAUSE OP TUE STRIKERS STRONGLY
ADVOCATED
By the Member of Oongress from the Reading Du
tnd— House Committee Integration Pro
ceeding—The Policy of the Reading
Coil Company.
Washington, D. C, February 10.—
Tb« special committee appointed to inves
tigate tue existing labor trouble« in Penn
sylvania, elected Representative Tillman
Chairman, and tben listened to an informal
statement from Representative Brumm,
whose district is in tbe Reading region.
He said that tbe railroad and mining
companies were one, and controlled tbe
mining and prices of coal in the entire
region. He thought the whole lockout was
fostered by the Reading company and that
tbe other corporations were as deep in the
mud ah tbe Reading is in tbe tniie. In
bis judgment, if the coal mining
business were not connected with the car
rying business, the effect would he to put
a higher price on c«al at the mines and a
lower price on freigbT In that way,
while the miners could be paid higher
wages, tbe lowering of the tolls would al
low coal to be sola more cheaply, and by
the incident increased demand, the coal
output could be increased and more work
aâorded tbe men.
When tbe Workman's Benevolent As
sociation was a power it» the coal region,
and there were numerous indi
vidual operators, tho men were bet
ter treated. Subsequently the railroads
by annoyances of all kinds crushed out a
great mauy individual operators and se
cured control of tbe ethers. From the
time the "Long Strike" occurred in which
tne men were beaten, there had been
constant complaints that the established
Reading scale was violated to the injury
of the mineis.
Mr. Brumm denied that the miners
were combining with tbe railroad men,
aud na<d that while the latter were in the
wrong at tirst, the blauie of refusing to ar
bitrate rested upon the railroad ollicials.
After tbe first interview with Superintend
ent Sweigert, said Mr. Brumm, the iepr<
sentativea of the men bad attempted, the;
said, to send telegrams declaring the strike
off and ordeiing the miners back to work,
but the Western Union Telegraph Com
pany, which to a considérable extent was
controlled by the Reading Company, had
refused to Heurt some merges and delayed
others; aud when in constqneuce many ot
the men at distant points did not return
to work, the company had the next day
langhed iu the striker's faces.
The hearing will tie continued to mor
row.
HORRIBLE CRUELTY.
A Story ot I In Sea—Cruel SutUriot;« ul
Bailor«.
Philadelphia, February lo —One of
the most atrocious cases of cruelty ever
known iu the annals of the sea has been
disclosed by the finding ol a naval court of
inquiry io connection with the voyage of
the British «hip Macedou fioui Philadel
phia to Hiogo, Japan. The Macedou left
this port on May 19, HfC, in command of
Jesse Willis Jone.'«, master. The crew were
all shipped at Philadelphia, several of
theai having beeu Ameiiian seamen. Five
unfortunates succumbed to their torture«
and were thrown overboard to be devoured
by a school of chiirks that followed in tbe
wake ol the ship The list of llie dead iu
eluded Edward Grant, John Miller, Jauies
Aruisliong, Alvtn Cbapel aud Angeln
Itlanchi. Tbe evidence showed that the
crew was subject to tbe cruelest treatment
by the office/a, men being horribly beaten
and mutilated when in the last stages of
sickness.
The outbreak of scurvy on hoard tbe
ship was shown to he due to a gross viola
I lion of the English statutes requiring the
use of lime or lemou juice and to a defi
ciency in the quantity of other anti scor
butics in tbe food supplied for so long a
voyage. Daring the voyage one of the
steward's feet was bitten off by a shark
when the ship was thrown on her beam
ends by a sndden squall.

tbe Knights of Labor in tbe Ki vereide

nor does tbe atrike involve all tbe Amal

as officers of a good organization, not to al

wages of an old and established trades

men, to at least not countenance an effort
looking to the reduction ot the wage« of our
